Home sick

Community Member

I’ve moved 4.5 half hours away from family and friends to be with my partner as we were previously doing long distance. It’s only been one month and I’m experiencing home sick, and it’s effecting my anxiety

has anyone else experienced this? If so any tips?

welcome to the forum and thank for starting this thread.

How do you experience your home sickness.?

Do you still phone or text friends and family.

is it possible to meet halfway one weekend..?

I moved away and it takes time to make new friends.

when I moved away I visited every second weekend and the after a few months just once a month.
